The purpose of this study is to investigate the social effect of crisis management on decision-making of managers in IAU, region 8. It is believed that this way can provide managers with better strategies to improve both the quality of their work and their decision-making in social crisis. The method of this research is descriptive surveying. 110 out of all 146 managers in region 8 of IAU were randomly selected, and a researcher-made questionnaire with two sections was used for the purpose of data collection. The first section included general information about managers, such as their gender, marital status, educational degree, job background, and management experience. The second section included 33 researcher-made questions. The results of data analysis revealed that there was a significant relationship between identifying (and controlling) social crises and decision-making by managers. Also, there is a meaningful relationship between decision-making and preventing crisis. Accordingly, it has been suggested that managers can be prepared to cope with social crisis through following ways: increasing their social information, raising their management awareness, attending scientific seminars about crisis management, appropriate use of instructional technology, employing experienced managers with certificates in the fields of identifying and managing crises, using the social experience of well-experienced managers, and improving the social conditions.
